Lady Gaga’s beautiful performance on abuse not only brought everyone to tears at the Oscars on Feb. 28, but it also had a big impact on alleged sexual assault victim, Kesha. We have the details of her message, here.
Lady Gaga, 29, no doubt had the most powerful performance of the night at the 88th Academy Awards on Feb. 28. and Kesha, 28, who has allegedly been a victim of sexual assault, thanked the Mother Monster herself for it. Read on for more details.
“Thank u @ladygaga and @vp for bringing attention to sexual assault at the oscars,” posted Kesha on her Instagram page. “It hit very close to my heart for obvious reasons.#ItsOnUs.” As we know, the “Tik Tok” singer has been in a nasty legal battle with Dr. Luke, 42, after he allegedly raped her. So Lady Gaga bringing out a crowd of women and men who are all survivors of sexual abuse during her performance of “Til It Happens To You” really had an impact on the singer. In case you haven’t been following the case very closely, Kesha was denied her request by a New York judge to break her contract with Sony, whom the Grammy nominated producer is involved with.

During Lady Gaga’s performance, the survivors came out of the shadows at the back of the stage and stood proudly surrounding her as she emotionally sang the song with tears filled in her eyes. The audience were all crying as well, as they gave her a well-deserved standing ovation. It was definitely the most moving moment of the entire night.

Lady Gaga has been no stranger to supporting Kesha during her legal battle with Dr. Luke. Just recently, the “Born This Way” singer shared a pic of them holding hands with their eyes closed that she simply captioned, “Free Kesha.” Lady Gaga then posted a lengthy message with the photo that tells her that she has given strength to women all over the world who are afraid to speak out against the individuals that assaulted them. These two singers have really given a voice to sexual assault victims, which is a beautiful thing to see. Thank you Kesha and Lady Gaga!
